PC isn't a gaming system, and FFXI is a PS2 game, therefore it will always be optimized for PS2
Wait, wait, wait, so you're saying FFXI is OPTIMIZED for the system that lags, freezes and looks like ass? Even SE doesn't believe this, or they'd never made HQ fonts for HQ machines (PC and XBOX, not PS2), or expanded graphics options for PC without giving the same options to PS2.
And PC has been a gaming platform since forever. WTF are you smoking? This statement is actually mind boggling. Do tell how you come to that conclusion beyond simply trolling? Or do you mean YOUR PC is not capable of gaming, just like you are incapable of rational thinking?
You wanna say you like lag and 8-bit graphics. Fine. You can like whatever you want. You preferring something doesn't make it better. Better is pretty objective in this case.
So, have you ever actually been wrong in your life? I'm curious.
